2003 Terra Barossa Riesling
A great example of Mount Crawford Riesling (one of South Australia's consistently coolest grape growing sites). Citrus, lime and orange blossom combine with a crisp racy acidity to create a fine example of a great variety. A moderate residual sugar balances well with natural acids to round off the palate.
Crushed and de-stemmed then pressed. Free run and pressings kept separate. Pressings were fined then re incorporated back to the free run. The juice was settled for 3 days then racked and inoculated for alcoholic fermentation, using yeast of French origin. Fermentation temperature 12°C - 16°C.
Drinking well now. Maximum cellaring 12-18 months.
